George Widener, Savant artist

30 years of Sundays in the 23rd century. Magic Time Square of all Fridays. Magic Square portrait of Queen Victoria. A few pieces from the web site of Savant artist George Widener, whose extraordinary memory, drawing skill and calendar calculating abilities have "only recently come to public notice." Found via Dr. Darold Treffert's fascinating Savant Syndrome site, with tons of info that raises compelling questions. [previous Savant-related MeFi threads]

This Wired article from MeFite digaman, originally posted in this thread, is worth noting in particular.

Thanks for this, mediareport: I particularly like Widener's drawing of the Titanic, and these cityscapes.
